Have your say on childcare | We need your views…

The Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce Legislation Group and the Department of Education, Sport and Culture have jointly undertaken to conduct up to date research into this area on behalf of the Child Care Strategy Working Group (CCSWG)

Date: Thursday 22 July 2021

Having and raising children is something which impacts not only parents and children, but wider family members who care for the child, businesses who employ those who care for a child, childcare providers, and the wider business community and economy.

The Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce Legislation Group and the Department of Education, Sport and Culture have jointly undertaken to conduct up to date research into this area on behalf of the Child Care Strategy Working Group (CCSWG). The CCSWG is a group comprising of representatives of Island childcare providers, the Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce Legislative Group, and cross-Governmental representatives, to work on the implementation of Tynwald recommendations in this area.

The CCSWG is aware that the pandemic has led to changes for families and employers. We would therefore like to ask for your views as members of the business community who have children, or those with child caring responsibility, or employers of such staff members, about your current requirements, challenges and thoughts in respect of childcare. The responses to this survey will help to form future legislation and initiatives in this area.

The responses to this survey will be anonymous and only anonymised data will be shared.
